Reminder | Wear orange, bring flowers, twine — UPDATE: Pictures, remembrances

An icon of Capitol Hill’s independent coffee culture will be remembered Tuesday as friends, loved ones and lovers will gather at Espresso Vivace’s Alley 24 location on Yale Ave N for a morning march up Capitol Hill to picnic in Volunteer Park.

You’re encouraged to bring flowers and some twine — and to wear orange, Brian Fairbrother’s favorite color.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UPDATE:
CHS will be joining the march as it reaches Capitol Hill after leaving South Lake Union and visiting the crash site in Eastlake. In the meantime, @seabikeblog (our very own Tom) is tweeting from along the route and sent us this picture:

  1. I am so sorry to have had to miss this (working) but absolutely inspired almost to tears by the outpouring of love and caring from everyone who attended (now I wish I had just blown the job off and come). Brian was a dear friend and I’m certain that he would be impressed with the turnout. You guys totally rock.

  2. I love seeing the pictures of Brian that have been popping up (and the video!!). I was continuously awestruck (and jealous) at how he never seemed to age over the years – maybe he looked so good because his energy was so vibrant. I loved Brian ’cause he was always 100 percent present when we’d hang out and our conversations were fantastic! The guy was smart, progressive, caring, and very much a realist.
    I’m sorry to have not attended the memorial but honestly, my heart is aching a little too much to go. Brian’s legacy, however, is already empowering and these pictures definitely bring a smile to my face!

  3. I no longer live on Capital Hill; nevertheless, I agree with so many that Brian Fairweather was the Broadway Bodhisattiva. I see Brian’s steps on the Broadway sidewalk on the way to Vivace saying “walk this way.”
